Are you excited about your anniversary plan of getting a couple tattoo done? Just, check out these few things that you should consider before taking the plunge. You must have been discussing about the pain and other related matters various times. You both may have previous experience of tattooing too. All these can help you in deciding a couple tattoo for you and your partner. But, when it comes to the couple tattoo, there are some more matters to look into.
Here is a list of the most important ones:-
Are you sure about him/her?
You may be 100 percent sure about getting a tattoo. But, are you feeling the same about this relationship too. Couple tattoo decision can be spontaneous, need not be stupid. But, remind yourself that this tattoo is going to be permanent, despite your relationship status. Do you/your partner has the habit of changing partners often? Do you see your future with your partner? Are you sure that 5-10 years down the lane, you will be as thrilled as you are now about this relationship? If you have answers to all these questions, you can get ready to take the decision. If you are not sure, give it some more time.
Name or Design?
When you decide to do a couple tattoo, the first thing that comes to your mind is either your partner's name or initials. But, there are better ideas though. You can choose couple designs that may have a meaning even if you end the relationship. Names can always be painful if the relationship does not last. Also, think about the pain of removing it in future. Go for designs that stand together to represent your love and stand alone with an identity. You should decide the position for your tattoo also wisely.
Being Awkward or Stylish
There is a thin line between being awkward and being stylish. If you cross it, you may become a laughing stock for your group. Be sure that you have a beautiful story to explain your tattoo. Every other person you meet may show interest in your tattoo and love story. So, keep it ready with sufficient spices to make it fictional and look no less than a fairytale. Do not overdo it. Go for smaller tattoos in the beginning. You can always modify or add on later to make it bigger.
Know about tattoos and your artist
Do maximum research before you get the tattoo done. Take time as possible to fix your design. Artist also matters when it comes to tattooing. The previous works of the artist can act as a testimonial for you. You should never compromise on the quality. Cheap tattoos can create health hazards. A small mistake can make you regret lifelong. So, you should be well learned before doing it. You can search online for the meanings of tattoos too. If you or your partner is a first timer, let your artist know about any dermatological issues you have and also can do a patch test before getting the final one done.
